What Do a Goat & a Papaya Have In Common?

How many Covid cases are there in the UK? It’s an important question. With shops, bars and restaurants reopening, we need to know how many cases there are, in order to be able to make the right decisions about where to go and who to visit. You’d think it would be a simple question to answer too. Do the tests. …

Better Than Christmas!

I’m so excited! I’m not going to lie – lockdown has been a rollercoaster ride for me. I’ve had up days and down days. Good weeks and bad. The business has had to overcome challenges I could never in a million years have predicted – in fact, Covid has been impacting freight for nearly 8 months now! I’ve had to …

It’s Like Black Friday All Over Again…

It seems this lockdown is really starting to shift now. Last week the non-essential shops reopened – and after good old Boris’ announcement today – it seems I won’t have to wait too much longer before a trip to the pub! I’ve missed the pub. Now, I don’t watch the news. I like to keep my headspace positive and there’s …

Tweets Outside My Window

Last week I told you a little story about some tech trouble. But it seems that the team member who was the star of the story is not the only one who is struggling to keep up with technology. One of my nearest and dearest customers and friends Mr D, sent me a little reply that made me giggle. Now …

Where’s The Silver Lining?

As you know, I love a good holiday. Every year we pack our bags and spend a couple of weeks away with the family in a nice resort. All-inclusive, great weather, a nice pool and beers on tap… But this year is going to be a little different. As summer fast approaches many borders are still closed. Travel is much …

A Glimpse Into The Future?

  I never thought I’d say this, but I could really get used to this working from home malarky. I won’t lie – at first, things were really tough. Trying to get my work done at the kitchen table with the usual family chaos going on all around me was hard. But it’s been a few weeks now and I’ve …

It’s a Disgrace

  I need to have a little rant today. I usually like to keep it positive, but something’s put a bee in my bonnet and I need to share. Illegal goods have always been a problem in the freight industry. From drugs and weapons to illegal animals and trafficked people – there’s always a small group of disgraceful criminals trying …

Who’s Steering The Ship?

Ever watched one of those “car-crash” type videos? You know the ones where you can see something is going to go terribly, terribly wrong… but you can’t do anything to stop it? Earlier this week I came across a video of a container ship crashing into a crane at Busan New Port terminal. It was painful to watch. It all …

Stick to What You’re Good At

Now, I don’t know about you but I have a long, long list of “one day” jobs. One day I’ll paint the fences. One day I’ll pressure wash the pathway. One day I’ll repaint the garage door… you get the gist? So last week I decided to put this quarantine time to good use and get some of these “one …

Are you going to hit the ground running?

I’ve been speaking to a lot of business owners this week. We’ve all taken some serious hits with this Coronavirus sceanrio. Many have lost clients, had new projects put on hold and some have had to shut up shop completely until the lockdown is over. But there’s something interesting that I’ve noticed. Some business owners are feeling pretty beat. They’ve …
